Hello Tumblrtopia.. This months challenge is SMOKE!
In getting a photograph ready for this challenge, I went to YouTube to watch some videos on the subject, and the thing that came out of that.. NOTHING.. Seems every video I watched they had a list of things you needed, things I didn’t have(external flash and remote). Being a “wing it” kind of person I set out to find a way to shoot it.. Thomas Edison once said, “ I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”, OK, so I didn’t try that many times, but I did fail a few times.. SO, here is what you need.. Something that gives off constant smoke, like incense, and light.. In my image, I lit it from underneath (the glass was sitting on my phone with the torch on) and another phone lit it from the side (back-lit from the kitchen window), I also used a shirt as a backdrop.. My partner did help me too, he was in charge of putting the smoke in the glass and blowing on said smoke to stir it up.. I shot this at ISO 800(needed more light), F5 at 1/200 secs because i wanted the sharpness in the smoke, you could slow your shutter to get softer silky smoke..
This challenge is a bit more challenging, but Stephi and i have no doubt you guys will come up with some amazing and interesting images using your own imagination and methods!! So, please remember to use abstract challenge as one of your first 5 tags, or you can submit your photos to the blog directly, you can also tag Stephi @stephiramona and myself.. all things to help us find your photos!
